Young prison officer Nicholas Glass is finding the stresses of the job increasingly hard to handle. When a group of cons use outside help to threaten his wife and daughter, Glass agrees to help them out with a 'favour'. But, as their threats escalate, and one favour leads to another, he grows ever closer to breaking point.
- 13/12/2011 Not normally a fan of crime fiction, I had to read this for a reading group session. I picked it up reluctantly, and much to my surprise it drew me in, and I became so engrossed in the storyline that I finished it in one sitting! I just had to find out the fate of Nicholas Glass!
I then recommended the book to a friend who had never read an entire book before - and he enjoyed it, and has had a book on the go ever since. That says it all really. Disturbing, but well written and very engrossing. Recommended.
